YOUR KID AS SCARED AS YOU?


"Get it away from me!!!" You screamed this upon seeing that tiny mouse that have somewhat made it inside your house...and your little one wide eyed and more scared with your screaming and reaction started to feel that she should also be afraid of it. On another side of the town is another commotion when a mother steps up atop a table as she begs her husband to throw away the trash that had been infected with maggots while she unknowingly passes down to her daughter her fear for worms.

DO YOU AGREE WITH ME THAT THE FEAR CAN BE PASSED DOWN?

Notice that in a household, if one parent is scared of a house lizard, more often than not, her children will be too. Or in any rodent actually; a spider, mouse, cockroach, worms. Psychological effect is to blame for this, because as children, they look up to their elders (their parents most especially). What is wrong for their parents they believe to be wrong. What is scary is indeed scary. And this usually is carried along even through the years as they grow old.

I should know, because we have one definite kind of thing with a rodent. My mom not liking it, passed along to me and all of my siblings, and now to my daughter. I honestly tried not to show her my fear just so she won't acquire it but its not easy...so there's only me to blame why she now doesn't like "that" rodent.

What of you and your family?
